This is especially true of the transportation of dogs. Although the size of the dog is also important. But first things first.
So, first we will see what troubles may arise when transporting an animal in public transport. It doesn’t matter if the train is a train or subway.
First, the dog may behave aggressively due to the large number of people. It is good if it only barks, but it may be that the dog after some time sets in motion its teeth. In such a situation, at best, they will drive you out of the transport with your dog, and at worst, you will be put on trial.
Secondly, there is the opposite feeling of aggression, which can be your favorite. Instead of sitting quietly, she can start pestering people, getting up on her hind legs and trying to lick her hands and faces. Of course, very few people would be pleased if his clothes are stained with saliva, especially dog clothes. Although among us there are passionate lovers of our younger brothers. But believe me, there are not so many of them.
Thirdly, a large dog may take up too much space in transport, especially if it lies on the floor. In this case, it is likely that they will require an additional ticket for the dog. Although this problem is quite simple to solve, buy a ticket for it.
Fourthly, you may be required to have documents confirming that the dog has vaccinations and a certificate of health of the dog. But this is done too principally conductors. But just in case, keep them with you.
If you are traveling with a dog on a bus, then you will have to get up on the back platform of the transport, as it is designed specifically for transporting animals.
If you are traveling in a train, then be prepared for the fact that they will not sell you a ticket in the Superior Coupé and CB. And the rest is for you. By the way, recently railway workers pay attention to the weight and size of a dog. You pay for another ticket (if the dog is a large breed) or for 20 kg of luggage. If the dog weighs more, the ticket is paid according to its weight. Naturally, a dog passing in a train (as in any other transport) must have an accompanying person.
In addition, it is possible to transport dogs in a compartment car, but only with this you have to pay for all the compartments.
With payment of the ticket, or rather, non-payment, only guide dogs who accompany blind people are lucky. Such dogs are carried free of charge.
Before buying a train ticket for a dog, do not forget to go to a veterinary clinic where you will be given a special certificate indicating that all vaccinations and treatments are required to transport the dog. Without such a certificate, landing a dog on a train is simply impossible.
So that you have fewer problems with the transportation of dogs in public transport, be sure to purchase special equipment for it that helps prevent unpleasant situations, and not only in transport.
For example, a muzzle. It is necessary not only to protect others from the sudden bites of your pet, but also for the safety of the dog itself. For example, a dog in a muzzle can not pick up trash from the ground or food garbage from the ground, which can cause her poisoning.
Many dog lovers prefer to walk their dogs without this device, believing that their “affectionate and kind” dog can not bite anyone. But, as practice shows, the majority of similar tragedies happen to those people who were bitten by a dog without a muzzle. Therefore, do not risk your health or the health of people around you.
Leash You ask – why does a dog need a leash? No, the dog does not need it. He needs a master. The leash will allow you to control the movement and actions of the dog, both in a calm and excited state. In addition, the leash allows you to change the distance between the owner and the dog, depending on the situation. This is convenient because the owner of the dog does not need to constantly chase after her if she wants, say, to run faster than a person.
Collar. It is needed in order to attach the leash, which was mentioned above. In addition, for dogs of large and aggressive breeds, collars are made with small spikes that stick at the dog’s neck at its slightest attempt to escape or bite someone.
Basket or special carrying bag. It is usually needed to transport small dogs – lapdogs, chihuahuas, dachshunds and others. Such a carrying does not allow the dog to run through the cabin of the transport, and the closed space of the bag allows to hide the crowd of people from the dog’s eyes, which contributes to its less excitement and, consequently, to good behavior.
Although dogs of small breeds are also allowed to be transported simply by hand.
Veterinary ticket. It should include all medical information about the dog, which includes a certificate of vaccinations and an assessment of the health of the dog.
Ticket for the dog. It must be purchased for large breeds of dogs, such as Dalmatians, Sheepdogs, Labrador and others. This is necessary because dogs of this size can take up a lot of space.
To avoid any trouble in the process of the road, you need to train the dog from early childhood, since at a later age the dogs are difficult to train. If you don’t want to make a professional dog out of her, then only a few teams, such as “Near”, “Sit” and “Lie”, will be sufficient for her Believe me, even such small skills will allow the dog, as well as you get to your destination without much trouble.
